The Innate Mind: Volume 2: Culture and Cognition

Peter Carruthers, Stephen Laurence, and Stephen Stich


This book is the second of a three-volume set on the subject of innateness. The book is highly interdisciplinary, and addresses such question as: to what extent are mature cognitive capacities a reflection of particular cultures and to what extent are they a product of innate elements? How do innate elements interact with culture to achieve mature cognitive capacities? How do minds generate and shape cultures? How are cultures processed by minds?

Keywords: cognitive capacities, culture, innate elements, the mind, innateness, evolutionary psychology
